The Reckoning is the stunning follow-up to The Legacy, which was the start of a thrilling new series that Booklist (starred) recommends for fans of Tana French. Vaka sits, regretting her choice of coat, on the cold steps of her new school. Her father appears to have forgotten to pick her up, her mother has forgotten to give her this week's pocket money, and the school is already locked for the day. Grownups, she decides, are useless. With no way to call home, she resigns herself to waiting on the steps until her father remembers her. When a girl approaches, Vaka recognizes her immediately from class, and from her unusual appearance: two of her fingers are missing. The girl lives at the back of the school, on the other side of a high fence, and Vaka asks to call her father from the girl's house. That afternoon is the last time anyone sees Vaka. Detective Huldar and child psychologist Freyja are called in. Soon, they find themselves at the heart of another shocking case. From the international number one-bestselling author of The Silence of the Sea, winner of the 2015 Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel Yrsa Sigurdardottir returns with the follow-up to The Legacy.… (mere)

Second in the series. Good read with interesting plot. Light on the psychology for a story involving a child psychologist. ( )

This book I liked a lot. Interesting, a bit gruesome at times, with a plot that kept me guessing about what happened. Well done! Will be reading the next book in the series as well. ( )

In the fall of 2004, Vaka sits waiting on the school steps for her father to pick her up from school. He does not come, and she is getting cold. When one of her classmates comes along and offers her the use of her home phone, Vaka goes home with her. Vaka is never seen, again.

Fast forward to 2016, and detective Huldar and child psychologist, Freyja, are involved in a mysterious case. A school time capsule from years ago is opened, and among the letters describing what the children thought 2016 would be like, there is a threatening letter inside, stating that certain people will die in that year. The list is nothing but initials. But, people start disappearing. And one of them has initials that match one of those that are slated to die this year.

This is an interesting story. It moves slowly at times, but the mystery is definitely intriguing and difficult to figure out.

Because this is a foreign, translated work, the unfamiliar names were difficult, at times, to keep straight. Also, the writer gives details that are later abandoned and deemed unimportant. That made this story a bit confusing at times. However, for a translated work, this was enjoyable.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. ( )

Kommissar Huldar wurde nach dem letzten Fall degradiert und wird irgendwie beschäftigt. Er hat mit Schulaufsätzen zu tun, die in einer Zeitkapsel steckten, welche nach 10 Jahren geöffnet wurde. Eine Botschaft ist darunter, die die Initialen von zukünftigen Mordopfern auflistet. Erla wurde befördert und hat es mit mysteriösen Mordfällen zu tun, bei der die Leichen verstümmelt wurden. Ein Zusammenhang liegt also auf der Hand. Huldar sucht auch wieder die Unterstützung von Freya, mit der er seit dem vorigen Fall keinen Kontakt mehr hatte.
Dies ist nach „DNA“ der zweite Band um dieses Ermittlerteam. Wie schon im vorigen Band geht es ziemlich grausam zu. Die Vorgeschichte der Ermittler wird noch einmal aufgegriffen, so dass man nicht unbedingt den Vorgänger gelesen haben muss. Allerdings wird manches ein wenig zu ausführlich erzählt. Dennoch ist die Spannung von Anfang an da. Die Atmosphäre ist recht düster.
Ein pädophiler Straftäter wird vorzeitig aus der Haft entlassen und eine furchtbare Mordserie beginnt. Was haben die Fälle miteinander zu tun? So nach und nach erkennt man die Verbindungen und am Ende geht es dann recht dramatisch zu.
Huldar ist ein guter Ermittler mit einem Gespür dafür, wenn irgendwo etwas nicht stimmt. Er sucht auch wieder die Verbindung zu Freya, nachdem beim letzten Mal nicht alles so gelaufen ist, wie er sich das erhofft hat. Zusammen mit Erla bilden sie ein gutes Team.
Auch wenn nicht alle Grausamkeiten ausufernd beschrieben sind, so ist es nicht immer leicht zu verkraften, was da passiert, ganz besonders wenn es um Kinder und Jugendliche geht.
Mir hat dieser spannende und packende Thriller gut gefallen. ( )

This horrifying topics in this novel--child sexual abuse (and its denial by the authorities who are meant to protect children), torture, murder--make reading this book a challenge, but the plot twist and the epilogue are worth it. Huldar (the detective) and Freyja (the psychologist) are complex, sympathetic protagonists, and the author makes wry observations on Icelandic society. Recommended. ( )
